Barrow-in-Furness, commonly known as Barrow, is a town and borough in Cumbria, England.
The beam of a ship is its width at the widest point as measured at the ship's nominal waterline.

A deck gun is a type of naval artillery mounted on the deck of a submarine.
The diesel engine (also known as a compression-ignition or CI engine), named after Rudolf Diesel, is an internal combustion engine in which ignition of the fuel which is injected into the combustion chamber is caused by the elevated temperature of the air in the cylinder due to mechanical compression (adiabatic compression).
A diesel–electric transmission, or diesel–electric powertrain, is used by a number of vehicle and ship types for providing locomotion.
The displacement or displacement tonnage of a ship is its weight, expressed in long tons of water its hull displaces.
The draft or draught of a ship's hull is the vertical distance between the waterline and the bottom of the hull (keel), with the thickness of the hull included; in the case of not being included the draft outline would be obtained.
A drive shaft, driveshaft, driving shaft, propeller shaft (prop shaft), or Cardan shaft is a mechanical component for transmitting torque and rotation, usually used to connect other components of a drive train that cannot be connected directly because of distance or the need to allow for relative movement between them.
An electric motor is an electrical machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy.
The Far East is a geographical term in English that usually refers to East Asia (including Northeast Asia), the Russian Far East (part of North Asia), and Southeast Asia.
Laying the keel or laying down is the formal recognition of the start of a ship's construction.
Length overall (LOA, o/a, o.a. or oa) is the maximum length of a vessel's hull measured parallel to the waterline.
A naval mine is a self-contained explosive device placed in water to damage or destroy surface ships or submarines.
A naval rating is an enlisted member of a country's navy, subordinate to warrant officers and officers, and hence not conferred by commission or warrant.
The Royal Navy (RN) is the United Kingdom's naval warfare force.
Taranto (early Tarento from Tarentum; Tarantino: Tarde; translit; label) is a coastal city in Apulia, Southern Italy.
A torpedo tube is a cylinder shaped device for launching torpedoes.
Vickers was a famous name in British engineering that existed through many companies from 1828 until 1999.
